Steve Guerdat (SUI) was the best in Friday night's CSI4* 1.50m Championat of Ommen powered by Boehringer Ingelheim and Nijwa. Riding the 9-year-old mare Ulysse Des Forets (Col Canto x Le Tot de Semilly), the 2012 Olympic Champion beat a field of 63 riders in this Longines Ranking class.

Fifteen riders managed to produce clears in the first round, and moved on to the jump-off where twelve againg repeated their clean sheets. Fastest of all however was Guerdat, who stopped the clock at 38.78 seconds. 

Two home riders followed in second and third: Willem Greve continued his good form aboard Carambole N.O.P.
